Memory of the Camps

Memory of the Camps: For more than 30 years, this film of the Nazi death camps was stored in a vault in the Imperial War Museum. There was an original typed script which PBS's Frontline added to the film and asked Brish actor Trevor Howard to record. The aim was to present this film unedited, as close as possible to what the producers intended in 1945.
